50 Cent has always been about his money and he’s added a rare “one-of-a-kind” car to his fleet of exotic whips.
According to SuperCarBlondie, 50 (aka Ferrari) purchased the White Lightning Jet Car — which was inspired by Formula 1, designed by the Parker Brothers and built from scratch — for a hefty $1.5million.
The sports car reportedly can muster over 400 horsepower and reach a possible 250 MPH on the streets.
50 has long been a car aficionado and he’s lent plenty of heat from his collection to DJ Envy’s car shows in the past and he’ll be sending some more out to the radio host’s Memphis car show this weekend.
While he’s calmed down on the lavish gifts front, 50 admitted in February that he was a bit crazier earlier in his career.
“The stuff that they see that I’ve learned, it kinda kept me out of trouble at points,” he explained to Ari Melber. “The stuff I was saying in the music in the very beginning, I was crazy to tell you the truth, Ari. I was absolutely crazy at that point.”
Perhaps 50 can pull up to Barclays Center in the $1.5million White Lightning Jet Car when he hits the Brooklyn stage on his Final Lap Tour in August.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of 50 Cent’s blockbuster debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’, the Final Lap Tour kicks off on July 21 in Salt Lake City, Utah and journeys across North America until September 22, making stops in cities such as Toronto, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit and 50’s hometown of New York City.
The European leg begins shortly after on September 28, and includes shows in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy and the U.K., where it comes to a close on November 18. Busta Rhymes will be joining Fif on the road, along with Jeremih for the North American dates.
Earlier this week, 50 took a moment to chat with his fans on Instagram Live, where he revealed he sold over 500,000 tickets in seven days and hinted at the tour being his last.
“Because ticket sales are doing so well they’re adding new markets so the U.K., North America and possibly Australia will be in there,” 50 said. “I gotta get to Africa. I got a lot of spots I gotta hit before I be done, because this is the Final Lap Tour.
“I won’t be running around like this no more. I gotta do my film and television stuff and got a lot of other things going on behind the scenes that I gotta work on, so I won’t be out touring as much as I’ve been touring…I’m having fun this time because it’s set up to enjoy myself, we not feeling pressure.”
